This is sad!

When I first saw this posted on NIT, I thought it was a joke.
Steve Irwin, the "Crocodile Hunter", has been killed by a stingray off the coast of Australia. I always thought that he took too many risks, especially in light of him having 2 young children at home. He was fun to watch, and it was refreshing to see somebody so enthusiastic about their job. I hope his wife & kids will make it through this horrible time ok.

Good point, anon #2/3...we do take risks everyday with our daily grind...his were perceived as so far more outrageous; I guess that's why some feel the way they do.

SO SAD ABOUT STEVE. BUT, HE WAS ONE TO TAKE OUTRAGEOUS AND VERY UNNECESSARY RISKS. EVEN PUT HIS CHILD'S LIFE IN DANGER (REMEMBER)? THATS NOT SOMETHING THAT A REAL 'WILDLIFE PROFESSIONAL' WOULD DO. HE WAS IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME.
